…over at the University in a little while. If you don’t know Michael Pollan, he is the very talented author behind Omnivore’s Dilemma and The Botany of Desire. While I hold his work in very high esteem, I confess that his politics irritate me greatly (as many of you know, I detest politics in my food). However he is a brilliant researcher who never fails to entertain. It should be a good lecture. His new book came out just over a week ago and is entitled In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto. I’m looking forward to reading it and reviewing it here on the site.
